Jill, Shane, & Ashley,
Our thoughts and prayers go out to you and your families during this difficult time. I did not know Ally personally but I do know some of your family members and I graduated with Jill. I always checked the website for updates on how she was doing and would ask her Uncle Kevin when he stopped in at my work. Her story has touched my heart and I am so sorry for your loss.
Dear Family, You and your family don't know me,But i learned about your daughter today. I just wanted to send my condolences to all the family and friends. i know how much pain you feel right now,(I too lost a child). With time i hope you will find peace in your broken hearts, and know that she will always be with you.
My heart and prayers go out to all of you. Your family is strong and will be able to make it through this trying time. Ally has touched many people. She will be in our memories for a lifetime. We will be praying for you in the weeks to come.
I just happened to see about ally in the paper and had to read her story. What a beautiful little girl! My heart goes out to you and your family with all you've had to endure. I hope you can take comfort in knowing she will be watching over you the rest of your years. A note to Dad- yes, your are SOME father, she was definitely loved during her short time here, you not being present at the very end doesn't diminish the love you gave her.
Following Ally's progression through all that she went through, has made her much like a family member and her passing has really touched my heart, spirit & soul. I could not believe it when I heard, especially since she was finally doing so well, going to school and enjoying childhood. I know that this is a difficult time for all, and I can only imagine the pain and emptiness, but I offer you all my love and support. We have to believe that God's plan and purpose for Ally being on this earth has been fulfilled, and that now she's in His arms and has moved on to the peacefulness she so earned and deserves.
Our prayers are with you. We are so sorry for your loss, but you will have those wonderful memories forever! I only learned about your little princess while reading the Mercury this morning. I visited the website and she sure is a beautiful girl.
God bless you and your family.
Kim and I can identify with your trials and tribulations.
My heart goes out to you. Shane and Jill you are the strongest two people I know and through your strength you will pull through and help Ashley. I have only gotten to see Ally one time and I will never forget her smile and her fight to hang on. I only wish I lived closer to be with you all more. I love you all and your in my thoughts and prayers. Love Kacy.
MY HEARTFELT SYMPATHY GOES OUT TO YOUR WHOLE FAMILY, I HAVE PRAYED FOR YOUR FAMILY SINCE THE BEGINNING AS I WORK WITH JEN H. MY HEART IS BREAKING FOR YOUR FAMILY AND ALL THAT YOU ARE GOING THROUGH. IT IS ALWAYS HARDER FOR THOSE WHO ARE LEFT BEHIND BECAUSE WE MUST SOMEHOW FIND THE STRENGTH TO CARRY ON WITHOUT THE PERSON WE LOVE SO MUCH AND MISS. ALLY IS WITH HER ANGELS AND I AM SURE SHE WILL SHARE THEM WITH YOU ALL TO GET THROUGH THE MOST DIFFICULT TIME IN YOUR LIFE. MY PRAYERS ARE FOR YOU TO FIND THE STRENGTH TO REMEMBER THE GOOD TIMES AND SMILE FOR ALLY AS SHE WAS SO VERY SPECIAL.
My thoughts and prayers go out to you family during this most difficult time. The loss of a child so young is something no parent should have to go through. I know. I went through the same thing a little over a year ago and it's the hardest thing you will ever have to deal with. Remember Ally's in a much better place and everyone who knew her and loved her will never forget her. Take care and God Bless!
I have followed Ally's progress through John Maicher's site. I can only tell you that even though I have never met you, my heart hurts for you and your entire family. Please tell Ashley that she deserves to be happy, and that she is allowed to be happy. Live your life for her and the blessing that she is. You will never let go of Ally, but you need to let Ashley know that no matter what has happened, she can still laugh, move on, and be a kid.
Please know that I speak from experience, and I am not just offering hollow advice.
I send you many hugs, and more prayers for you and your angel.
I was so sad to read these last two updates. We have had the honor of walking with Ally's Angels for the last two years. We have admired the love, strength and courage you all have shown for the last several years. Ally was so lucky to have such incredible parents and sister by her side every step of the way. You will continue to be in our thoughts and prayers.
Jill and family, I am sorry to hear of the loss of your precious Angel Ally. May you find strength at this difficult time. Thank you for letting us get to know Ally. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
I am so heartbroken for your loss. I know only little of what you all have been through, and you are the strongest family I know. I am so greatful to have known you and have ally be a part of my life. She inspired so many people. Be strong. I love you all.
I work with Jen Heimbach and have been praying for Ally. I am so sorry for your loss and I will pray for your family that The Lord will be with you all during this very tough time. You all are amazing people and a great example of Christ's love. Jesus loves you.
We are feeling your loss here in Pittsburgh at the Children's School. We are sending many hugs to Ashley from her old teachers and friends! You all touched our lives last year and are in our thoughts and prayers now.
Dear Heintz family - I been following your journey for quite a while now. I know I have never met you but yet I feel I know you. My heart mourns for your loss. I have to believe the Lord has his arms wrapped around Ally and she is safe and happy there. My thoughts, prayers and deepest sympathies are with you.
Shane, Jill and Ashley - my heart is heavy with emotion over the lost of your angel, Ally. I did not have the priviledge of personally meeting Ally but through the Boyertown community and your extended families I feel as though I could call her a friend. I have been checking the journal daily/weekly and I believe that the strength and love your family showed Ally over the last 4 years will carry you through this difficult time. I pray that God will comfort you and heal your pain.
I'm so sorry for your loss. I've always viewed Alley's site when I would be in reading John's. I really became attached and concerned with everyday tasks she was going through. I enjoyed all the pictures and the strength that you, your wife and Ashley have with dealing with such ups and downs. I really thought she was on her way to freedom of hospital's. It really makes you realize how quick life can change it's course. God Bless all of you. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Debbie, Dave, Austin, Brendon, and Gabriel Stephenson
We are sorry for your loss. Being parents of three boys the youngest being only a few days older than Ally I cannot even imagine the pain you must feel. I wish I could bare some of it for you.
Love to you all
I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Ally could not have better parents, a better sister, or family, and all of you have been truly amazing and inspirational. I feel privileged to have worked with you and Ally. Ally will always be remembered as a very special girl, and a real fighter. May you find comfort in your faith, memories of wonderful times shared with Ally, and the thoughts and prayers of those who care about all of you.
We are so sorry to hear about your loss! I had the opportunity to meet Ally twice while working at Dr. Kromash's office. She was and always will be such a wonderful little girl with so much spirit and happiness that spoured out onto everyone who had the opportunity to be around her. Just know that she is in a better place now. Are heart and prayers go out to you and your family.
Dear Shane, Jill, Ashley & family, Our deepest and sincerest thoughts are with you. Ally and you truly provide inspiration to us and many others. Through the hardships faced by your family there is always a loving perspective and wonderful smiles that persevere. We so appreciate the opportunity to know her and will always cherish our times and memories with her.
I too am shocked by this devastating news. I'm so sorry and I am praying and asking the Lord to carry you during this time. Praying, too for Him to mend your broken hearts. God bless you all.
